Also if you look at roons website they recommend a pretty beefy NAS for the server
In the description they even state you should be prepared to spend just shy of $2k US
Indeed, beefy. They warn you, fair enough. Not only a beefy NAS is needed, if you use a dedicated computer to run the server, it also needs the bigger specs. No words about library size either..
Makes me wonder if eg. the Sonore family is powerful enough, there's not much info about their specs on the Sonore website, other than stating is was made for pure audiophile use..
All in all we seem to be bothered by the same issues we experience on the BDP (1). More than powerful enough for playing audiophile quality music files per se, trouble starts when you need the visuals. Either way, the solution seems to be expensive upgrade(s) on each part of the chain, added to the cost of the software, which still seems very very steep.
besides the above, which is more of a Roon issue, im experiencing intermittent BDP1 shut offs and lockups in Roon Ready Mode. Is the BDP1 not really up to it? Or should/could another setting be modified.
Maybe i need to consider the BDP2 after all
On the Roon forum they also mention the Raspberry not being their favorite platform, to put it mildly. Processor, memory, sd vs ssd etc. That would also compromise the BDP-p1 then?
